Mourinho plays down Pogba interest but confirms Man United will ‘sign one more’

first_img Jose Mourinho Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has refused to comment on the club’s apparent pursuit of Paul Pogba but has indicated there is still time to complete a deal.United have been heavily linked with a world record move for the Juventus and France midfielder, who left Old Trafford on a free transfer four years ago, for much of the summer.Reports last week claimed a deal was close to completion but no announcements have been forthcoming and the situation is yet to be resolved.Asked about the situation prior to his captain Wayne Rooney’s testimonial against Everton on Wednesday, Mourinho told BT Sport: “We are going to sign one more player for sure. I don’t want to speak about Paul (Pogba) because he is a Juventus player and I don’t like other managers to speak about my players. I don’t speak about their players.“But the reality is we are going to sign one more player. The market closes, as you know, August 31 so we have plenty of time to do that, but I’d like to do it before the Premier League starts.”United face Leicester in the Community Shield on Sunday before travelling to Bournemouth for their Premier League opener the following week.Mourinho has overseen the signings of Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic since being appointed earlier in the summer and has consistently said he wanted to bring in a fourth player, with Pogba the most likely candidate. 1last_img read more

Poll Question: How Has Your Confidence In Oklahoma State Changed?

first_imgI’m pretty interested to see these results especially after the OKC Dave preseason survey in which we predicted 8.5 wins (which does not seem like a lot of confidence).screen-shot-2016-09-20-at-9-05-24-amAs always, results plus commentary will be posted on Wednesday.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! We are 25 percent finished with the season. This marker, more than any other throughout the year, is the one that I always find most startling. The season is a quarter over. Do what?!OSU is 2-1 (sort of) after a tricky three-game non-conference schedule, and the Big 12 looks like dog poo so far. So the question today is whether you are more confident, less confident or equally confident in OSU winning the Big 12 as you were when the season started three weeks ago.Poll Q: I am _____ confident OSU can win the Big 12 after three games than/as I was at the start of the season.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 20, 2016last_img read more

INX Media scam Delhi court extends Chidambarams judicial custody till Oct 3

first_imgNew Delhi: A Delhi court Thursday extended till October 3 the judicial custody of former finance minister P Chidambaram in connection with the INX Media corruption case. Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar also allowed medical examination of Chidambaram. The court extended the judicial custody of Chidambaram after the CBI sought extension of the veteran Congress leader’s judicial remand. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for CBI, sought extension of the judicial custody and said there has been no change of circumstance from the day he was first sent to jail. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Chidambaram, opposed the investigative agency’s plea to extend his judicial custody. Sibal moved an application on behalf of Chidambaram seeking regular medical checkup and adequate supplementary diet during judicial custody in Tihar Jail. He said that the 73-year old Congress leader is suffering from various ailments like coronary artery disease, hypertension, impaired glycemia and has lost weight during the custody, to which he was sent on September 5. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, also appearing for Chidambaram, said the former minister had a chair in the hall outside his cell which has been taken away. “He can only sit on bed. He also has not been given a pillow”. Allow him to be examined at AIIMS, Sibal said. “Health of any inmate is of concern. Whatever is permissable in law, would be done by the jail authorities,” Mehta said. The CBI had registered an FIR on May 15, 2017, alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to the INX Media group for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007 during Chidambaram’s tenure as the finance minister. Thereafter, the Enforcement Directorate lodged a money laundering case in this regard in 2017. Chidambaram, who was Union home minister as also finance minister during the UPA rule from 2004 to 2014, was arrested by the CBI on August 21 from his Jor Bagh residence.last_img read more
